Kindergarten Round-up for Parents AND Students
Informational sessions, called “Kindergarten Round-Up”, are for parents of children who will be starting Kindergarten in the 2019-2020 school year. Washington School’s Kindergarten Round-Up will be Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 6:30 P.M. to turn in paperwork. The meeting begins at 7:00 P.M.
Kindergarten Round-Up is held in the school for parents and incoming Kindergarten children. The occasion gives parents the opportunity to meet the principal and the kindergarten teachers. Parents will also become acquainted with the kindergarten program. Parents will receive a copy of the Kindergarten Handbook at this meeting. This is also an opportunity for children to visit the school. This will be replacing our spring visit day, but students will still have an opportunity to visit the classroom again in August prior to the first day of kindergarten
Parents are encouraged to begin the enrollment process before February 28 by bringing their child’s original birth certificate and three proofs of residency to Washington School. However, parents are certainly able to bring the necessary documentation to the Kindergarten Round-Up.
Parents who are unable to attend Kindergarten Round-up are asked to call the school at 630-682-2222 to add their child’s name to the Kindergarten mailing list.
For all necessary enrollment information, please visit www.cusd200.org. Please feel free to call the school with any additional questions.
Parents will need to pre-enroll their child in order to complete the online registration process.
St. Baldrick's Time is Approaching!

WatchDOGS Sign-up - NEW Spring Dates Added!
The WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students) Is a program that creates opportunities for dads to volunteer in schools. WatchDOGS do not have to commit to an ongoing schedule; they can volunteer as little as one half-day a school year. WatchDOGS help out with whole class activities and also one-to-one or small group reading and math practice. Students also love playing with WatchDOGS during recess!
Sign up to volunteer here: WatchDOGS.
